Learning from my mistakes: an English teacher's blog: Blooming Bloom's Taxonomy

Blooming Bloom's Taxonomy http://t.co/lapey4CBfm
John R. Walkup's insight:

Offers an interesting take on Bloom's Taxonomy as applied to the writing process and even proposes an alternative model. I don't fulliy agree with the author's stance, but worth a read anyway.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Cognitive Rigor | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.
John R. Walkup's insight:

Although not explicitly linked to Cognitive Rigor, this paper discusses critical thinking and its relation to constructionism, with extensive discussion of the Maker movement.  Offers interesting insights into the role of writing in critical thinking as well. Those interested in project-based learning, Making, constructionism, and inquiry should read this article.

Taxonomies can be used to create assessment, map big ideas in a curriculum, structure discussions–in fact, this should probably be a post of its own. But back to Webb & DOK–Grant Wiggins recently shared a post on assessment design–or rather, the reality of “power verbs” as they relate to rigor (always a fun word) and complexity.
